    Poor Blanchett, outacted the fuck out of them all with ease and will be losing, at least it will be to Regina who is so deserving as well, but Kerry above her is just an insult

    Whilst I (sadly) think Blanchett is losing to Regina I think there is a possibility we’re jumping to conclusions too soon. After all voting hasn’t even begun yet and won’t begin until August 21st.

    As much as I idolise Gloria Steinem for all she did for the feminist movement and all her campaigning to ratify the ERA it’s worth baring in mind that it is not as if she has that much influence to stop Cate Blanchett from winning an Emmy. After all it’s not as if she hasn’t gotten herself into controversy recently :

    This controversy certainly does not help Blanchett, but it is just one of a variety of reasons to doubt her.

    That is true perhaps. But the timing of this article is unquestionable. I understand Ms Steinem’s sentiment regarding this, but to flatly said that what so many amazing women have done (which includes Elizabeth Banks showing us the face of Republican feminist Jill Ruckleshaus, thus showing us how bipartisan the movement once was, Uzo Aduba playing the amazing Shirley Chisholm and her struggle to do the right thing) as something that is “bad for American women” is deeply hurtful. I have watched the interviews many of the Mrs America cast members gave and I honestly thought it would be the most inspiring “women power” story.

    Is Ms Steinem wrong? Probably not. But if she wanted to say that “Mrs America” painted the picture of feminists in 1970s which also includes her, as catty, this article proved that apparently they were.

    This article, published two days after the nominations were announced is honestly, a profoundly sad story about some women having the power to hurt other women.

    I will cheer for Ms Blanchett because I do believe she deserved it. And while I do understand that taste is subjective and some may disagree with me, I find her work unquestionably the best performance in any category this year. By a long shot. That apple pie scene should be taught in acting schools.

    I agree.

    I still think it’s too early to jump to conclusions. I mean after all as I said there is still a while to go before nominations and I feel like whether it’s with Evan Rachel Wood’s tone deaf comments on Kobe Bryant (which I blame myself for reading too much into) or Jodie Comer dating a Trump supporter (was that even true) that we read too much into these things sometimes.

    I have Blanchett in 2nd but if King wins TCA then I will probably drop Blanchett below Haas. If Blanchett wins TCA then I’ll put her first but if neither do (I’m currently predicting either Rhea Seehorn or Jeremy Strong) then I probably won’t change my prediction of King winning.

    Blanchett might even be 4th. Kerry is thespian for blacks. And she’s baity as it can get in LFE. And she’s getting overdue. I won’t dare to consider Spencer above Blanchett. Let’s be realistic lol.

    Kerry is thespian for blacks. What do you mean by this?

    Steinem will always be a controversial figure. But when the real people involved in a fictive work actively cite grievances with it, that’s not something to just easily sweep under the rug. It’s an issue that’s not going away. People can read and have long memories. See Arnold, Andrea.

    Yeah, it feels like Blanchett is 4th at best imo. Regina is winning (deservedly so).. Haas is second; could benefit from passion votes. Washington is beloved enough and gave a career best in LFE. Blanchett’s character is unlikable and her show underperformed. Ocslayvia is #5, the nomination is the win for her.

    I am having “Blue Jasmine” flashbacks here with Dylan Farrow’s letter naming Blanchett.

    I have said it. Blanchett was absolutely amazing in the role of Phyllis and as much as I like Regina and she truly did great work, I can’t even consider it above Blanchett’s. As for Washington and Spencer… Comparing those two performances to Blanchett’s (and in many ways, King’s) is a joke.

    I didn’t realize how much of a The Leftovers reunion we are having this year. Damon Lindelof, Regina King, Jovan Adepo, Mimi Leder… Heck, even Justin Theroux is nominated for producing this year! A shame that Ann Dowd was snubbed.

    I don’t have her in 4th, but being a two-time Oscar winner hardly helps her, especially when King and Spencer are both Oscar winners as well.
